What is Beeldbank Holland above Amsterdam?

Holland above Amsterdam is an assignment from the municipalities in North Holland North. The task is to market the region Holland above Amsterdam as good as possible so more (day) tourists come. The intention is that these people spend more in our region through the information we provide, make people aware of what to do so that they stay in our region longer.
